I am an Assistant Professor at Leiden University in the Leiden Institute for Advanced Computer Science (LIACS). Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Amsterdam, working with with Prof. Cees Snoek. I completed my PhD at the University of Bristol, advised by Prof. Dima Damen and Prof. Walterio Mayol-Cuevas. My area of interest is Video Understanding, with my PhD thesis (which you can find here) focussing on Skill Determination. I am particularly interested in fine-grained and detailed video understanding with weak, noisy or other forms of incomplete supervision.
